A Preposition or An Adverb?


How to distinguish the difference between a Preposition and an Adverb.

Some words can be used both as prepositions and adverbs. But it is easy to tell the difference if we remember that prepositions are always used with nouns or pronouns they govern, but adverbs only modify verbs, adjectives or adverbs.
